AIA Diversity Advancement Scholarship Triples Number of Awards for 2018

Attention Affiliate Leaders and Team Leaders

Please alert any high school seniors who are minority and plan to enter architecture school next fall about this lucrative scholarship opportunity (up to $20,000 spread over several years).

ACE students now stand a better chance than ever to win one of these scholarships.  In recent years, AIA annually awarded 3-4 scholarships. 12-14 scholarships will be available in 2018.

ACE students and alumni have been remarkably successful in winning one of these awards.  In 2017 a Chicago affiliate senior earned one of three scholarships. In the preceding year, 60% of the awardees were ACE seniors and alumni.

Minority high school seniors who are applying to NAAB-accredited schools of architecture are eligible.   The on-line scholarship application requires much of the same information as college applications. Two references are needed.  An ACE mentor who is a practicing architect can serve as a reference.

Deadline: January 17, 2018

In addition to high school seniors, rising sophomores in NAAB-accredited architecture schools are also eligible. So if you know of any eligible alumni urge please notify them and urge them to apply.
